Even More Stupidder

Than state constitutional amendments banning gay marriage is the proposed federal amendment, which is now going to the full senate, and which states:

Marriage in the United States shall consist only of the union of a man and a woman. Neither this Constitution, nor the constitution of any State, shall be construed to require that marriage or the legal incidents thereof be conferred upon any union other than the union of a man and a woman.

It’s dumb for all the reasons I explained yesterday. Furthermore, anyone who supports this can NEVER EVER EVER again try to hide behind ‘small government’ or ‘federalist’ principles. If you support this amendment and then tell me you oppose the Voting Rights Act because VRA interferes with state’s rights, I’m calling you a racist p.o.s.

This is the most outrageous example of federal over-reaching since Wickard v. Filburn. Read it, it’s the federal government telling all of us how to read our own state constitutions. Good luck finding anything that has a longer history of exclusive state control than does marriage. Give me a break, whether or not Alabama recognizes gay marriage has absolutely no impact on any other state. As things stand now, no state has to recognize gay marriages performed in other states. This is asinine, and all ten of the losers who voted today to send it to the full senate ought to be flogged. As for the one guy who had the guts to call this stupid piece of base electioneering what it was:

Russ Frikin’ Feingold for President!
